    A fool-proof and inexpensive full-immersion method of brewing coffee, this little gem is as familiar as a drip machine - it uses #4 filters - and is as simple to use as a French press.

    The resulting coffee retains much of the delicious body of a French press, but does away with the sediment. The steep-and-release mechanism means that you can accurately control the brewing, and extract the coffee directly into your mug with no mess.

    And at this price, it's about one of the best value brewers you can find.

    2. Carefully fold seams of paper filter to allow filter to sit flush in the dripper

    5. At 1:10 remove cap
    6. Break crust by stirring with spoon, pulling residual grounds off of the filter walls, and stir two full rotations
    7. Place dripper on top of carafe/cup to activate drain-valve while stirring 4 more times to initiate a vortex, replace lid, and wait for coffee to fully drain

Fanatastic little brewer

After using the Handy brewer for tea, I was curious about a steep-release coffee maker.

The CLEVER is wonderful and works well. It brews delicious coffee with a lot of body but retains the benefits of a paper filter.

I highly recommend this brewer to anyone interested in immersion brewing who doesn't want to deal with lots of coffee oil.

I think the best place to start to learn about home coffee brewing.

Not as finicky as some other brew goof for a newbee. Check out the James Hoffman youtube video on the Clever...very helpfull.

Awesome single serve coffee maker

I am thoroughly enjoying my new Clever Dripper. Easy to use and makes delicious coffee.

GRM (British Columbia, Canada)
Great taste

I really like the flavor of the coffee from this method. It's smoother than a press.
I also like the easy clean up.

Jillian C. (British Columbia, Canada)

Ordered a clever coffee dropper and it came very quickly!

Christopher M. (Alberta, Canada)
Practically Perfect Brew Method

Combines the clean flavour of a pour over with a paper filter with the extraction of a french press.... all with super easy clean up! LOVE IT!
Previously, I used a Chemex nearly every morning to do a pour over, a recent shortage of paper filters resulted in exploring other options. I find most french presses to be a bit too gritty and intense, I've done a french press followed by a paper filter before but it was too much work.
Clever Dripper has given me the best of both worlds, full long extraction, with a clean cup from the paper filter, without any of the fuss of a pour over. Wow. Dead simple, excellent cup of coffee every single morning!
